Apple’s ‘See’ director clears up rumors about show’s budget

 

Executive producer and director, Francis Lawrence, discusses the making of “See,” and clears the record on how much the series cost to produce.

Apple's 'See' director clears up rumors about show's budget

“See” takes place 600 years in the future, after a viral apocalypse had eradicated much of the world’s population. The humans who survived were rendered blind, reverting to a primitive, tribal-like culture.

Jason Momoa (“Aquaman”, “Conan the Barbarian”) plays series lead Baba Voss. Voss’ wife gives birth to twins, the first humans in six centuries who are born sighted. He must protect his children and tribe against a powerful queen who believes the children will herald in the destruction of their world.

As it turns out, a post-apocalyptic world takes a fair amount of planning. According to Lawrence, they had to think critically about all of the show’s intricacies.

“We had a think tank with blind consultants and an evolutionary biologist and a survivalist and all these different people come in to brainstorm ideas,” Lawrence said.

It had been reported that the show would cost $240 million for two seasons, or roughly $15 million per episode. In an interview with Business Insider, Lawrence said that while the series is expensive, the budget had gotten blown out of proportion.

“It’s an expensive show,” he said. “People have thrown around that it’s the most expensive show. I can guarantee you it’s not.”

In the interview, Lawrence goes on to talk about how it was important to the creators to incorporate blind and low-vision actors into the show. While the cast is primarily sighted, they plan on scouting additional actors for future seasons.

“See” launched at Apple TV+’s debut on November 1, along with titles like “The Morning Show,” and “Dickinson,” and many more to come shortly after launch.

Apple TV+ is priced at $4.99 a month, though if you buy new hardware, such as a new Apple TV, iPhone, or Mac, you’ll get a year for free. Additionally, even if you don’t own any Apple devices, you will be able to watch Apple TV+ from your favorite browser at tv.apple.com.
